FG orders EFCC to probe Larmode over N1trn diversion

27 October 2015, 11:18

Abuja - The Federal Government through its Ministry of Justice has directed the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to investigate the allegation that its chairman, Ibrahim Lamorde, diverted about N1trn proceeds of corruption recovered by the anti-graft agency, Vanguard reports.

The ministry’s directive followed a September 18, 2015 petition to the Solicitor-General and Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Justice, Abdullahi Yola.

The petitioner, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Panic Alert Security Systems, a security firm, George Uboh, had sent a reminder letter dated September 28, to Yola, threatening to sue the ministry if he failed to respond to his petition within seven days.

Uboh had, in his petition, asked the justice ministry “through which EFCC derives its power to prosecute to immediately rescind the fiat to prosecute criminal suspects from EFCC.”

He also sought an immediate issuance of “fiat for the prosecution of EFCC’s past and present leadership and their known and unknown co-conspirators via the 22-page preliminary criminal charges the undersigned has prepared.”
